BrightDrop And FedEx Set New Guinness World Record

General Motors’s BrightDrop announced that, in collaboration with FedEx, it set a new Guinness World Record title for the greatest distance traveled by an electric van on a single charge.

The BrightDrop Zevo 600, formerly known as the BrightDrop EV600, completed the nearly 260-mile (418 km) trip from New York City to Washington, D.C., driven by Stephen Marlin.

According to the press release, as part of the journey, the Zevo 600 transported a shipment of Full Circle sustainable cleaning products from its headquarters in New York City to a MOM’s Organic Market location in Washington, D.C., a Mid-Atlantic chain of family-owned and operated organic grocery stores.

FedEx is a strategic first customer of BrightDrop EVs, which received the first units in December 2021.
